Seventeenth Air Force (17 AF) is a Numbered Air Force attached to the Air Force Special Operations Command. It is stationed in Nairobi, Kenya.
The Seventeenth Air Force was formed on August 22nd, 2515 as a part of Operation: TREBUCHET. It was originally based out of Eridanus II, but at the start of the Great War, it would be reassigned to Earth in order to boost up airborne defenses.
The division's subordinate units would see widespread usage during the Human-Covenant War and would serve as the premier special forces branch of the UNSC Air Force. Notable engagements include the Battle of Reach, Eagle Glacier Theater, Sahamandrevo II Campaign, and the Sol Theater of Operations.
The main mission of 17 AF is supporting UNSC SOCOM forces, gathering enemy intelligence, weapons testing, and reporting global air operations to senior personel.
